Cafe Curtains - Country Home: If you want to have a country home setup, then you have lots of possibilities to choose from. Easiest is to find a tree branch that would be perfect for your window and would match your cafe curtains. Besides the wood as a classic, you can also pick an iron rod or some old, rejected part that can fit as a curtain rod.
So how do you narrow all these options down to the perfect curtain rod for your window? It's not as hard as it sounds. Like most projects you'll need to have a plan, so start deciding - -
The material you select for your window curtains will depend upon the upholstery of your furniture and the color of the walls. You also need to decide whether you want a thick material to block out sunlight or a lighter material that will let sunlight filter through. If you want to your curtain to be made of silk, make sure that you line it with cotton and interline it with flannel. If you don't do this, the sunlight will fade your silk and you will have to keep replacing your curtains often.
How will your rods be hung - inside or outside the window frame? For outside the frame - on the wall: the idea here is usually to cover the window completely. Measure 2-5\" out from each side of the window trim. The total curtain rod length should be about 12\" longer than your window width. And don't be fooled: measure each window in the room - they may look the same size, but they may not be!
Maintenance: Curtains aren't something that require consistent cleaning, apart from the times where there may be a little spill or stain. It will important to treat them accordingly, but until then, it's important to give them a wash every 3-4 months. This will keep your curtains colours and longevity, which is only beneficial when it comes to the price of curtains. Lighter curtains can be washed with any home based washing machines, however if you have larger, thick and heavier curtains, it will need to be dry cleaned.
